This belongs to a friend's father - http://charlottesville.craigslist.org/rvs/4635931568.html - I know it has been parked at our seasonal campground for a couple of years at least. The father knows me as "one of the teachers" in the campground if you do end up calling about it.

Located 9 mi. outside of Floyd, this CG is truly "old school." Only 38 sites (all have W/E) 6 are W/E/Sewer. About half the sites are big-rig friendly. NO 30A service, all sites have two 15A recepticles. This wasn't an issue as the weather in Floyd (elevation 2,441 ft.) was upper 70s over middle 50s for our 4-night stay (Aug. 13-17).
The camp is situated on a hillside so the sites are dictated as much by terrain as by design. Sites are fairly level and native stone is used to form borders and bulkheads. The firepits are stone rings, too. The whole place is under a dense canopy of hardwoods making it ideal in the summer - shade everywhere. In the fall, the colors must be magnificent. With all the oak trees the soil is acidic so the whole place is covered in moss and colorful lichens.
The bath house is freshly painted on the inside and, although close to 40 yrs. old, immaculate. Stainless steel wash basins and the hottest shower water you'll ever experience in a camp ground. There is a playground with steel sliding board, swing set and horse shoe pit. No pool, minature golf, cable, Wi-Fi. Ice is $2.50 for 10lbs and bulk propane is available.
Daddy Rabbit doesn't take credit cards and has no e-mail address. However the CG is on a local Blue Ridge website here: http://daddyrabbitscampground.com/
Close to the Parkway and Floyd, this is a great, throw-back CG. We will be returning for sure.
Sorry no pics - I forgot my camera.

Don't be confused by the name. This park is not on a harbor--just close-but you can't see it. Know where you are going to get there as signage is very small. Main road was paved-sub roads were not. Sites were not leveled but most were very close because of the natural lay of the land. Pool good-kiddie pool was drained. Campground personnel were courteous. Utilities worked.
This campground was laid out as part of an Airport strip/marina /campground combo. Airstrip doesn't exist anymore & the marina is now owned by someone else. It is long but not wide. Shade was good but most of the trees on the end where we were consisted of Sweet Gums with their gum balls.
Fenced basket ball court and another fenced in old tennis court where they have constructed some miniature golf holes. They have a sand play area with a slide. It was not noisy where we were and all of the children and pets were extremely well behaved. There was even a lady there with 3 cats on yard leashs.
This camp is not as close as it looks to Colonial Beach as there aren't a lot of bridges. You have to go the long way around.
One thing that I have never run into before is that they insisted that I unhook my tow car at the office and drive it in and rehook in the parking lot on the way out. We are just 22ft. with a Geo Metro! Overall good quiet park with about 40% long term top quality rigs.

Wanted to go to Westmoreland State park for the weekend but they are full. Found Harbor View in Colonial Beach which is in the same general area. More pricey but sometimes that happens. I don't see that anyone has reviewed it. Any comments as to what to expect other than the web site info would be appreciated. I will write up what I find upon my return.
